Just realized the few times I thought I was falling for someone they “loved” my body and they had others on the side. Never experienced genuine love. What should I do other than getting fat to weed out these people? 😑

It’s probably not just about your body. People with all different body types can have someone fall in love with them. So no need to get fat or start to have unhealthy thoughts about your body.
My advice is to just stay open to the possibility of love. As you can see from the singles bowl and the myriad dating apps and matchmakers, a lot of people are looking. You’re not the only one who hasn’t found their “person” yet.

We need a lot of help with babies and kids, especially when both parents are working. I know this because i have a 4 year old. But i am still healing from the struggles of trying my best to raise the kid and keeping everything afloat.

While we are planning second, i don't want to be struggling for air like the first time. And i know its going to be even crazier with two kids. I am anxious

So, where and how do you find help? Did you do it on your own, if yes, how on earth without going mad?

Anyone else have issues with family assuming they can bring a plus one to your wedding, including their baby!? I have a cousin who says she can bring her 19month old daughter b/c she's immediate family...I met her when I was probably 15yrs (I'm 29yrs old now). Also my cousin definitely doesn't know the definition of immediately family at 45 yrs of age! My fiancé andnI are pretty pissed knowing that she clearly thinks she can do whatever she wants.

I’ve been holding my feelings back hard. (He still invites me to group/office outings, so pretty sure he senses nothing weird.) I know it’s hard to find someone like him though, and I wonder if I really should just silently kill my feelings for him?
